They call it the Bluebird Capital of Texas. And by the looks of things around town, one could guess there might be a bluebird festival every year in this historic little town in Van Zandt county. There are murals, birdhouses, and a number of other objects found in the town to indicate the significance of this bird.
Work put me here a week ago. It has been my furthermost assignment and one that I really enjoyed. But I’m not talking about work for this blog is not about my career. Someone asked me recently what I do for a living. I’m a nurse. Once a nurse, always a nurse, but not in the clinical setting. So that’s all you need to know about my career.
On to the Majestic. This movie theater has been in operation for a very long time. I was told by a local, it opened in the mid 20’s. He also said that movies that are shown there are family movies. If anyone wants to see anything other than that, they can drive themselves to Dallas, only 40 miles down the road.
It is a single screen theater and by what I was told and what I have read is supposed to be the oldest family owned/operated theater in Texas.
Downtown Wills Point screams with character of days gone by. Shops and business line the brick paved streets with the railroad just a block away. In fact, the train station has been renovated and sits right on the west side of town along the 80. My time was limited however in this little gold mine of photo opportunity. Furthermore, in a mad rush to get out the door that morning to make my 10 a.m. appointment, I left my Nikon on my desk. This shot was taken with my phone. Thank goodness such a thing exists.
